I am a man in my late 50’s living in the Crumlin, Dublin 12 area. I have a wonderful sense of humour and I really enjoy having a joke and a laugh with people over a cup of tea. My interests in life are going for long walks, shopping, bowling, meeting up with people and having the ‘chats’, visiting places of interest, local churches, cinema and listening to music etc. I like to be active.

I am looking for someone to support me for 2 evenings per week (8 hours) to maintain and develop my interests. I would like to get to know more people in my community and join some social clubs and or volunteer in the Crumlin or Drimnagh area.

So, if you are fun loving and sociable just like me! And would be interested in providing this support please send your expression of interest to recruitment@walk or email who will be able to tell you a little more about me and what I am seeking.
